New, 1 comment

In which BracketCat counts down the 80th day until kickoff with a profile of tight end Cody Small.

This No. 80 is Travis Tannahill, but in two to three years, it just as easily could be his successor, Cody Small.

Bio

Position: Tight End

Previous College: None

Projection: Redshirt

Status: On Scholarship

Cody Small originally signed with K-State out of high school in 2012, but spent the fall as a part-time student paying his own way — also known as taking a "grayshirt." He collected one tackle in the spring game after an interception.

Small helped Cypress Woods High School to a 9-3 record in 2011 and was listed in VYPE's Top 75 Football Prospects in the northern Houston area at No. 38.

An all-district performer as a junior and senior who also earned All-Houston area honors as a senior, Small was named a "Rising Star" in 2010 by 5ATexasFootball.com at defensive end.

He also was on Cypress Woods’ 7-on-7 team, which reached the semifinals of the Cy Falls Tournament in 2011.

I'll be honest — from watching Small's film, I actually liked him better as a defensive end prospect. He may yet end up there, too, but I'm willing to wait and see what he offers at tight end in 2014. Expect a redshirt this season.
